CAM REID

Reid grew up between the Comox Valley and Min- strel Island, developing his artistic abilities and passions at an early age. He went to art school at Emily Carr University 2006 to 2010, achieving his BFA and excelling primarily in painting and print- making throughout his time there. He currently works with ideas surrounding the human experi ence of time and memory: subjective time, memory recall, and false memory are common recurring themes in his work. These works are manifested in paint, and in drawing installations utilizing etched plexiglass and digitally printed plastic film. Reid won first place at the Victoria Emerging Art Awards in 2010, and currently shows around Canada and the UK. He is currently represented by The Apartment Gallery in Victoria, British Columbia.
